Haiti stove project - Zanmi Pye Bwa

Following the earthquakes of 2010 Haiti was left in devastation. Many cook stoves were flown in as an emergency stop gap so that people could continue to eat, but use minimal fuel. Following that Trees Water People set up a project to help locals produce their own stove. The stove is called the Zanmi Pye Bwa which means "Friend of the Trees". Of course the stove results in far lower fuel usage = less deforestation. Locals are able to produce the stove cheaper than the imported stoves and it helps develop the local economy. We have donated two Zanmi Pye Bwa stoves every month. This project has now been replaced by the Fuel-Efficient Cookstove Program in Central America.

You can find out more, and donate online at the Trees Water People website.
